A Readers’ Advisory Podcast about becoming better library staff by reading every genre, whether we like them or not! Every month we read books from a new, randomly picked genre; then on the podcast we discuss our reading choices, experiences, opinions, appeal factors, and other related topics as friends and library workers.

Nov 2, 2021

This episode we discuss non-fiction books about Music! We talk about sea shanties, whether musical scores count as non-fiction, reading about music we’re unfamiliar with, how we interpret lyrics, and more! Plus: We made a playlist of music for you to listen to based on the books we read!

You can download the podcast directly, find it on Libsyn, or get it through Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, Spotify, or your favourite podcast delivery system.
